A reflection on the Gospel for The Twenty Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time

In some countries, much consideration is given as to how a person dresses. People are judged by the clothes they wear. In certain places of employment there is a dress code and for example, there are things and types of shoes that can only be worn on Fridays and clothes that are used during the week. There are still many resturants that require a jacket and tie. Are these dress codes important? It may not seem like it, but in a way it reflects a person’s attitude in certain situations. You wouldn’t attend a wedding in shorts or wear a tie to the beach. Everything has its place. The way a person dresses indicates if there is respect for the event and how one is viewed. And what do we wear to a banquet with God? The king in the parable becomes upset that many in his party members were not wearing appropriate attire. But if they happened to be people from the streets invited at the last minute, unerstandably they did not have time to change into something different. Or is the parable referring to something else? Maybe it is referring to the dignity and respect with which one enters a banquet.

Una reflexión sobre el evangelio del Vegesimo Octavo Domingo en Tiempo Ordinario

.En algunos países se cuida mucho la vestimenta. Se juzga a las personas por su manera de vestir. En algunos trabajos existe una normativa. Hay prendas o tipos de calzado que no se pueden usar nada más que los viernes, por ejemplo, y otra ropa que sí se puede usar en la semana. Hay resturantes donde hay que ir con traje y corbata. ¿Son importantes estos códigos? No pareceria, pero en cierto modo, reflejan la actitud de la persona en las diversas situaciones. No se iría a una boda con pantalones cortos, o a la playa con corbata. Cada cosa tiene su momento. La manera de vestir indica si hay respeto por el acontecimiento, cómo se le considera. ¿Y para entrar al banquete de Dios? El rey de la parábola se indigna porque algunos no llevaban el traje apropiado. Pero si eran gente de la calle, invitados a última hora para la fiesta, lógicamente no habrían tenido tiempo de vestirse de otra manera. ¿O se refiere a otra cosa? Quizá se refiera, más bien, a la actitud, a la dignidad y respeto con que se entra al banquete.

Our Parish Festival

I’m sure everyone had fun. I certainly did. Wow, what a huge turnout we had! The courtyard was packed and there was hardly any elbow room. I’m glad that we took out the concrete stage at the center else there would have been a lot less gathering space.

The Eucharist went well with a few glitches, as usual. Thanks to Msgr. Jose Rodriguez who graced our festival with his presence and his inspiring homily. That was a brilliant idea to install a TV moniter at the parish hall for the overflow of people.

So we had come together to celebrate with the Eucharist, food and drinks, songs and dances. All the communities rallied together to make this happen: the Caucasians, Tongans, Hispanics and Filipinos. More than the money ( I don’t know yet how much we raised), our festival is an occasion for us to come together in a spirit of fun and gaiety; to appreciate the richness or our traditions as presented in songs, dances, and; to deepen our devotion to St. Bruno and love for God.

Three virtues that stand out in the life of St. Bruno are: humility, love for work and devotion to the Eucharist. He was such a humble man with no ambition for prestige that twice he turned down the request to become a bishop.

Of work, he speaks about cheerfulness. He was a strong defender and promoter of Church doctrines, especially the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist.

As we go back to our daily routine, may we be inspired by the life and work of our patron saint. May he console us in times of trouble, strengthen us in times of weakness; enlighten us in times of confusion and lead us to live lives of humble and dedicated service to God and his people.

I will see you when I get back from vacation.

El Festival de nuestra Parroquia

Estoy seguro que todos se divertieron. Yo si me diverti. Wow, que grande asistencia tuvimos! El patio estaba completamente lleno no quedaba ni un espacio chico. Estoy contento de que quitamos el cemento que estaba en el centro. Porque con el cemento del centro no habria tanto espacio.

La eucarestia estuvo bien excepto por unas cositas, como siempre. Gracias a Msgr. Jose Rodriguez que con su presencia y la homelia que nos dio. Fue una gran idea de tener el monitor de television en el salon para las personas.

Todos nos reunimos para recibir la eucarestia, la comida y refrescos, canciones y bailes. Todas las comunidades se unieron para realizar el programa: Los caucásicos, los tonganos, hispanos y filipinos. Mas que el dinero (no sabemos todavia cuanto se recaudo), el festival es una occasion para unirnos en espiritu, diversion; y para apreciar las riquesas de nuestras tradiciones presentadas en las canciones, bailes, y; para grandar nuestra devocion a San Bruno y el amor a Dios.

Tres virtudes resaltan de la vida de San Bruno son: humildad, amor para el trabajo y devocion a la eucarestia. El era un hombre tan humilde con ninguna ambicion ni prestigio que dos veces renuncio ser Obispo. De trabajo el habla con gusto. El era un fuerte promoter y defensor de la doctrina de la iglesia, especialmente en la verdadera presencia de Cristo en la eucarestia.

Ya regresamos a nuestra rutina diaria, que seamos inspirados de la vida y trabajo de nuestro santo patron. Que el les de consuelo en los tiempos de problemas, que nos de fuerza en los tiempos de debilidad; que nos de luz en los tiempos de confunsion y que nos guie a vivir nuestras vidas de humildad y dedicacion al servicio de Dios y su gente.

Los veo cuando regrese de mis vacaciones.

Padre Michael Brillantes
